MUSA Transcriptome SSR Database (MusatransSSRDB)
MUSA GERMPLASM INFORMATION SYSTEM (MGIS)
Musa germplasm Information system (MGIS) was developed by INIBAP, France support to ensure the safe conservation of Musa genetic resources. MGIS is a computerised database system, which allows genebank curators to manage all the information with the curators of other collections and with Musa researchers worldwide. To date, 34 scientists from more than 15 countries have been trained in the use of MGIS. Participation in MGIS will allow Musa researchers from all over India to share and exchange information about the different Banana varieties found in their region.
A training programme on Musa Germplasm Information System (MGIS) was organised by NRC for Banana, Trichy in Collaboration with International Network for the Improvement of Bananas and Plantains (INIBAP), France and ASPNET, Philippines during 21st to 24th May 2001. Eleven genebank curators from different states of India were trained on MGIS.
Till date, NRCB has updated the passport data for 1,190 accessions, 390 accessions for complete characterization data along with photographs for 50 accessions, which has access through internet.
